Red Over Canal/ Weekend Reflections

Bridge over canal in the Holland Marsh, East Gwillimbury, Ontario

Wasn't I lucky to have a red car drive over this bridge just as I snapped the shutter? Gotta love  synchronicity!

Serendipity...and it can only happen when you have a camera with you. Terrific photos, EG!

Re your comment on Stone Creek - I saw the shadows and thought of your immediately! You're the shadow master!

A typically dirty car in Canadian springtime. Nice reflection!

Kate said...

This would be a lovely addition to theSunday bridges meme. I not only like the red car, but the reflection is terrific!

Yogi♪♪♪ said...

You lucked out. Nice colorful reflection.

Rose said...

No other color would have looked as good as red! I would have liked the shot without it, but once seeing the red car, that just completes it somehow or other...

Sylvia K said...

Sometimes the "surprise" pictures are really terrific! This one surely is.

Birdman said...

... and 'in' canal.

NatureFootstep said...

yes, the red car makes the picture I think. :)

VP said...

A splash of red is always nice in any picture!

BJ Roan said...

If that had been a gray car, it wouldn't have been as interesting. You were in the right place and the right time. Love the shot!

Kim, USA said...

Wonderful, watery shot!

Thanks for stopping at my photo blog.
I love the reflection here and the added pop of red!

Karen said...

Terrific shot...love the blue sky reflected in the water.

Jacob and Lois Anne said...

Hi EG! Re your comment on Ocala DP: I dunno whether he's the "real" Easter bunny or just a helper. I asked for his birth certificate and he said it was in Hawaii with his Momma Bunny. Can you believe that? He's probably just an imposter bunny, born in Canada where his father was a plain ol' jackrabbit!

Farmchick said...

Love that reflection!

Mama Zen said...

Cool!

Randy said...

Awesome reflection!

forgetmenot said...

Ms. Becky said...

this is one of the best photos I've ever seen. it's timeless. it has longevity, it'll never cease to be a great photo.

Kathy said...

And is that a double reflection?

Malyss said...

Only red could give your picture such a strength!

Betty Manousos@ Cut and Dry said...

Terrific reflections!
Pooping over to your site via Nancy's and I'm glad I did.

Happy weekend!

Very lucky. Excellent shot.

George said...

The reflection of the red car goes well with the reflection of the red bush. This is a wonderful picture.

Inger-M said...

It's perfect for the photo, great shot!

Genie said...

Yes, you wherever lucky...and the red refection is the best. I just love it when I catch some nice color in my reflection shot. The car all by itself crossing the bridge is a neat image.

snowwhite said...

Yes, you are absolutely right! No color is more suitable than red. Strongest accent. You had a pleasant spring day.
Have a great weekend.

awesome. I see the reeds are still barren. Still very cold?

We are starting to be cold already. The weather has gone stir crazy

James said...

Nice! The red really stands out in the reflection.

Francisca said...

Yup, you were lucky... and with your skill and fine eye you got a fine reflection on a nice spot. The red car is perfect for the shot. (Catching up on weekend reflection posts...)
